Union muzzled by Law they supported

Union muzzled while awaiting poll watchdog’s ruling – 29 Feb 2008 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

The EPMU can’t campaign or spend any money campaigning because they are waiting for the Electoral Commission to adjudicate. The irony of one of the biggest supporters of the EFA being caught up in the provisiopns of the Act is delicious.

It shows just how stupid, reactive and vindictive this law was. Of course the EPMU should be able to campaign, they should also be able to spend as much as their members will stand in campaigning. The fact that they are currently caught proves the stupidity.
